Such a great concept!
I love the idea of bringing cool people together over an American staple: the french fry. Angelica does an awesome job at this, so that it's less about the food (which is still worth talking about, especially as a fellow Pittsburgher eager to try new restaurants) and more about the conversation. I enjoy the variety of topics and the expert way Angelica navigates and leads the discussion. Definitely an easy listen that always leaves me thinking!
Who doesn't love fries?
I just love the concept of this show! Who doesn't love chatting over a fresh batch of fries? Angelica visits some really cool restaurants in pittsburgh, that are all worth checking out, and has great conversations along the way.
